Subject: RE: Tech: Shruti Boxes - Thoughts?
I've heard Noirin ni Rian using a sruti box while singing sean-nos.
Punters in the crowd referred to it as "the singing handbag."
Add to that Noirin's penchant for undulating gestures with the other hand while singing and you get their trenchant comment on what she does: "sean-nos for the deaf."
